Disease and Treatment

Renal stones is a common urological problem in tropical countries. The stones can be in the kidney, ureter (passage from kidney to bladder), bladder and urethra. The symptoms may be :

Loin Pain, Abdominal Pain, Vomiting, Burning Sensation when Passing Urine, Frequent and or Urgent Urination, Fever etc.

Depending on the stone location and size we offerme treatment such as

  • Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PCNL) Ureteroscopy (Semi Rigid and Flexible)
  • Per urethral / Percutaneous cystolithotripsy (for Bladder stones)

We have the State of the Art Holmium Laser Lithotripsy machine which can be used for breaking stones, the advantage being its capability of breaking all types of stones. Stone migration is minimal and can be used with flexible instruments enabling intra renal procedures without any scars.

Enlargement of prostate happens when men cross 45- 50 years of age and can cause problems while passing urine, symptoms being :

  • Delay in Initiation, Decreased Force, Frequency/ Urgency, Feeling of Incomplete Emptying, Night time Frequency (Nocturia), Recurrent Infection etc.

We offer both medical and surgical treatment for such patients.

Endoscopic Treatment for prostate is transurethral resection and we offer BIPOLAR SALINE resection which has significantly less side effects compared to regular monopolar TURP.

Blood in the urine can be due to varied reasons but one reason we don’t want to miss, is cancer! We run a hematuria clinic where patients with blood in the urine are evaluated with scans, cystoscopy and specialist consultation along with urine tests as deemed necessary.

This is involuntary loss of urine. Incontinence can be associated with activities which increase the abdominal pressure (like lifting weights, laughing, sneezing, getting up etc)- this type of incontinence is called Stress Incontinence.

At times urine leak is preceded by intense urge to pass urine-Urge Incontinence. Few patients can have a combination of both- mixed incontinence.

Evaluation and differentiating the two is important as treatment is different. Various treatment offered are :

  • Lifestyle Modification
  • Pelvic Floor Exercise
  • Medications
  • Sling Surgeries
  • Botox Injection

Comprehensive treatment is available for all urological cancers such as

  • Kidney
  • Adrenal
  • Bladder
  • Prostate
  • Penis
  • Testis

Various reconstructive urological procedures are done here like :

Pyeloplasty- For obstruction to the ureter at its beginning

Ureteric Reimplantation – For various ureteric problems like stricture, ureterovaginal fistula (urine leak from ureter to vagina) etc.

Vesicovaginal Fistula Repair – Urine leak from bladder to vagina Penile curvature and Hypospadias Correction

rethroplasty (for stricture) – Anastamotic, Staged and Buccal Graft Urethroplasty.

Men who have a problem with their sexual performance may be reluctant to talk to their doctor, seeing it as an embarrassing issue. However, modern medicine has revealed numerous medical and psychological explanations for erectile dysfunction, including the possibility of serious underlying conditions that it is important to address.

We run specialized health clinics for men to cater to patients who have problems related to erection, ejaculation and fertility.

Patients with erection issues (difficulty in getting a rigid penis) are evaluated with necessary blood tests, penile doppler etc.

Various treatments available are :

  • Counselling
  • Medications
  • Vaccum Erection Device
  • Intra Cavernosal Injections
  • Penile implants.

patients with ejaculatory disorders can be quick ejaculators or non ejaculators. These patients are offered extensive counseling, creams and drugs.

For anejaculators we have penile vibrators to help them ejaculate.

Male factor for infertility could be due to ejaculatory problems or abnormality in semen parameters. Semen analysis is done by a team of expert embryologists and we also have State of the Art CASA ( computerised analysis ). The cause for abnormal sperm parameters could be hormonal, life style, obesity, testicular obstruction, varicocele etc. These patients are evaluated and treated according to the abnormality detected.

The following services are available for treatment of male infertility :

  • Micro TESE
  • Microscopic varicocele repair
  • ICSI
  • IMSI
  • Digital Xray • CT scan • MRI • Uroflow meter
  • Ultrasound- including high frequency probes for penile and scrotal Doppler
  • Image intensifier (C Arm) – for dynamic urethrogram and micturating cystourethrogram
  • Holmium Laser Lithotripsy machine
  • 40x microscope for varicocele repair and micro TESE
